Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Visio

We use Visio to easily and intuitively create flowcharts, diagrams, org charts, and more, using modern shapes and templates with the familiar Office experience. We are a process oriented company so flowcharts are a great way for us to communicate to others the steps involved in each process and which part of the process pertains to them.
  • Work together on Visio flowcharts to include insights from all stakeholders.
  • With Office 365*, multiple team members can work on diagrams at the same time.
  • Connect your flowcharts and diagrams to real-time data.
  • Applied shape formatting automatically updates your flowcharts to reflect changes in the underlying data, either in Visio or through Office 365*.
  • Its inability to delve deeply into micro information successfully.
  • It is a paid software which comes after paying a Microsoft licensing fee.
  • The cost is high and the integration of the stencil library is unnecessarily fragmented.
  • The more you use it, the faster and more effective you will get.
  • Visio diagrams have help us streamline processes that reduce costs and improve efficiencies.
  • It is a very complete program, it allows you to make industrial and civil works diagrams. It also allows you to design 3D graphics. It is a very reliable program.
  • Its ability to work with vectors is a big plus. It can easily import SVG graphics, edit their individual lines and then being able to export the edited SVG again.
Microsoft Visio, with a plethora of templates, shapes, layouts, and designs, Visio is a paradise for your visual modeling requirements. Lucidchart advertises itself as a Visio alternative and boasts of being used by the teams at Cisco, Harvard University, Accenture, and more. From floor plans to iPhone and Android mockups, it has a ton of robust pre-made templates that expand beyond what Visio offers. Visio is expensive so unless you are part of a massive team, the price tag of $280 for the Standard version is very costly. There are free diagram software available as well as those that cost only a few bucks a month so find the diagram tool that meets your needs and budget.

Ease of use, it has many stencils supporting system architecture and IDEF system behavior diagrams. I have also utilized it as a system conops design tool. Excellent flexibility. Powerful program for drawing plans and structural charts, is easy to use and contains a wide range of design tools that facilitates the development of flow charts for users with little experience.
